Re: Singular head noun, followed by two genitives and καὶ

Seems like what you're suggesting would more likely be ὁ θρόνος τοῦ θεοῦ καὶ τοῦ ἀρνίου.

But it's Revelation, home of the solecism, so perhaps you could read it that way.

Re: A god?

Wouldn't Acts 28:6 be relevant here?

ελεγον θεον αυτον ειναι

[The natives] said that [Paul] was a god.

Re: 1 Cor 9:5

Alan: I don't think this sentence in itself implies either that Paul is married or that he's unmarried. If all we had was this sentence as a papyrus fragment, we could read it either to the effect that "I'm not married because I choose to be unmarried, not because I don't have the right to marry" or...

Re: 1 Tim 2:12 - should both infinitives apply to ANHR?

Regardless of the meaning of αὐθεντεῖν, what about Nyland's take on the syntax? Is it really possible to understand αὐθεντεῖν as the content of the activity of διδάσκειν in this context? I find her notes unconvincing and am wondering what other, more-experienced readers think of the viability specif...

Re: 1 John 4:19 - αγαπωμεν

Is it common to use the pronoun ἡμεῖς with the hortatory subjunctive? If so, does it tend to precede or follow the verb?

Re: Romans 5:14

Thanks, Carl.

Romans 5:14

αλλ εβασιλευσεν ο θανατος απο αδαμ μεχρι μωσεως και επι τους μη αμαρτησαντας επι τω ομοιωματι της παραβασεως αδαμ ος εστιν τυπος του μελλοντος

Must the antecedent of ος be αδαμ or can it be μωσεως?

Re: Placement of adverb

In prepositional clauses the head noun is often anarthous because the preposition already implies some specific entity, so it is common to see " preposition + noun + article + genitive noun ". How exactly does a preposition imply some specific entity? Can you cite some NT examples of the chain Pr+N...
